Experience The Views & Tastes Of Nelson, BC

Our guides are all locals who know the best locations for hikes, waterfall viewing, and stops along the way to let you relax and take in the best the Kootenays offer.  On this adventure, we aim to take you to whatever location best serves your goals for your guided tour. Because your trip is private, you can choose how much hiking and wilderness exploration you wish to do!  Below is essential information to help you get the most out of this tour.

What Does "Casual Tour" Mean?

  • These tours/hikes are all within 1 hour driving distance from Nelson, BC. 

  • Depending on the fitness levels and goals of the group, we can still do big hiking days. 

  • The casual aspect is the travel time spent getting there and the length of the day. 

  • These tours are generally between 3-8 hours. We can do a shorter or longer day if you wish. Make sure you communicate with us your group's goals for the day.

  • Apres isn't just for winter. After your hike, we can take you to some of the best breweries and restaurants the West Kootenay has to offer

  • Sit back, relax, and take in the views while we will do the driving! We have a 7-seat AWD vehicle that comfortably seats a group of 5. Groups of 6 are possible, but it can get tight in the back. If you have a larger group, reach out, and we can coordinate to secure a passenger van.
